David Cameron admits he had a stake in his father's offshore investment fund
David Cameron has admitted he did have a profitable stake in his father’s offshore investment fund, five days after the leak of the Panama Papers. After the release of the Panama Papers, Mr Cameron and Downing Street staffers released four different statements about his financial affairs – though, despite the clarifications, questions remained. In an interview with ITV News, the Prime Minister said: "We owned 5,000 units in Blairmore Investment Trust, which we sold in January 2010. That was worth something like £30,000.
Cameron needs to resign and resign now.
He has been caught in a lie and he needs to accept the consequences of that.
A lie of omission is still a lie. He has been asked repeatedly for the last five days if he has benefited from his father’s offshore tax avoiding fund, he has avoided answering that question truthfully for five days, and now it’s revealed that he himself was a direct investor in the fund.
Resign, Mr Cameron, you are a hypocrite and a liar and unfit to hold office.
